So, about 2200 downloads within the last 3 weeks.. That's about a 100 downloads A DAY. So, anyone wanna take bets whether Sid Davis will overthrow George Putnam by early next year?

Can anyone explain why the kid is on probation after he goes with the stranger btw?

I bet the BB download rate will slow down and Perversion will retain the top spot. They are both certainly top notch products of paranoia.

Apparently, the kid engaged in homosexual activity, which was against the law, regardless of age, and confessed to the police.

Hate to say it, but BB is the quintissential 'What's wrong with the 50/60' film. It's even better/worse then 'A Date With Your Family' (At least it's easier to watch). The narrator dude, ridiculous[sic] scenarios, hilarious phrases (EG. Riding in the shadow of death, the public restroom is often a hangout for the homosexual, traded his life for a news paper headline, etc, etc), accedental[sic] but very telling stuff (for lack of a better word) (the Sid Davis cameo, the car's reuse), and the reflection of this in the present (HSX paranoia) is going to doom it to success.


PS. Ops, that should've been a review, not a forum post!

PPS. Maybe I'll beat the No1cult incumbent[sic] (Duck & Cover)!
